Collection: Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is regarded as a form of phytotherapy (plant-based healing) and is used around the world. Aromatherapy is ascribed to the invention by Persian doctor and alchemist Ibn Sina – known to us as Avicenna. In his book  “Canon of Medicine”, Ibn Sina recommended essential oils and infusions to treat physical and mental illnesses.

Essential oils have been very important in a wide range of different cultures around the world for millennia. The Persians, Egyptians and Greeks used essential oils for ritual and healing. Essential oils are also used in aromatherapy, a form of alternative medicine that employs plant extracts to support health and well-being.

The chemicals in essential oils can interact with your body in several ways. When applied to your skin, some plant chemicals are absorbed. Inhaling the aromas from essential oils can stimulate areas of your limbic system, which is a part of your brain that plays a role in emotions, behaviours, sense of smell, and long-term memory. 

Interestingly, the limbic system is heavily involved in forming memories. This can partly explain why familiar smells can trigger memories or emotions. The limbic system also plays a role in controlling several unconscious physiological functions, such as breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure. 

Shiana Wellness Aromatherapy range offers a range of organic essential oil blends to increase wellbeing and alleviate illnesses.
